tide earlier in president obama's years in the white house, hasn't the deficit, which was huge when he came to office, been getting smaller. >> largely on the back--the sequester cuts which were a small but measurable reduction in over all spending, but also because of the fairly large tax hikes that have occurred under obamacare and under the fiscal cliff deal that they struck on new year's day of 2013. it raised taxes on higher income earners. it's been by extracting more from the american people and not by the government controlling it's out of control spending. >> raised payroll taxes to where it was for decades before they were cut in an emergency. >> but to american families, that now decreased the amount of money that they bring home. >> when you look at healthcare costs, social security and pension, that's where all the growth is. healthcare is the biggest driving factor. with that we're cutting roads, highways, education, medical research, the things that we ought to be investing in because we're holding sacrosank for folks my age. which i appreciate very. but to end the defic
. will it be a happy holidays for president obama after a very tough year? first wave of fixes for health care.gov. we wait to find out the true test. what happens when more people logon today. an update on the commuter train derailment in new york and what governor cuomo had to say. find out whether kiber monday sales will live up to the hopes and expectations of retailers and how close to reality the plans to deliver the orders with drones. forget mail box baseball. high school kids will have a new game to play if drones deliver things. good morning from washington. monday, december 2nd, 2013. this is "the daily rundown" fresh off from my sunday turkey chili. the obama administration's deadline to have a better functioning healthcare.gov for the vast majority of consumers has come and gone and the administration is claiming success. >> the hom binbottom line, healthcare.gov is night and day. >> that was a low bar. >> he effectively gave itself a pass after saying 400 bug fixes and software improvements and the site is working more than 90% of the time. the site was stable only about 43% of the time.
they were five years ago, the uncertainty of obama care, the horrific tax code, less opportunity for people to rise up. >> rick, he is criticizing something that happened under his watch. >> yeah, here's the problem that i have. first of all, and john will love hearing me say this. i'm not sure that government is a big answer. >> we are all happy to hear you say that. >> i knew you would be. but here's the problem. most people analyze this in terms of do you think obama's policies produce growth, anti-growth. growth is actually not the issue because it only matters if it's shared. if a company that's making $14 billion in profits this year makes $20 billion next year, what's the difference if they don't share the benefit? >> but john, it is kind of the issue because sometimes a rising tide lifts all boats to quote john f. kennedy, rick's favorite president. if you look at what happened under the reagan term, the lower 20% and the top 20% increased by double digits after those tax rate cuts. >> i'm one of those people who believes that income and equality is unrelentingly beautiful. when tha
conditions. there was also some talk of a deadline by the year end. the obama administration wanted something signed by the end of the year. now we're hearing let's take our time. maybe we do not need to rush it through after all. that is probably what is going to happen. >> on iran? >> i think he is doing the same thing. we are talking about delaying actions. the administration has no interest in sanctions. i think the democrats are discussing it. it will affect the defense authorization debate. if they cannot get a deal on , and the to the senate republicans do not seem amenable , the plan b seems more likely. >> not another round of sections? congress will hold off? republicans will wait? >> republicans will try but they cannot do it without the democratic leadership doing it. too.is interesting, there are democrats who probably would see stronger sanctions against iran. this falls on harry reid to try to figure out how to keep this from becoming a debate on the floor. they cannot control it. it could throw a wrench in the works. some democrats may have a deal less inclined to push sanctio
. the president has not seen omar obama in 20 years and has not spoken with him in roughly ten years. >> they said three years ago he's never met him. is that a small thing or a big thing? these are all huge things. it goes to the trust of the president. whether it's politics, business or personal relationships. when you have a breakdown of whether or not someone is a person of their word or not, rebuilding that is almost impossible. the american people are seeing barack obama for what he is. he says one thing and does another. he's been lying to the american people. he's been exposed. these little lies, like lying about whether you met someone or not that's been significant in your life, listen, those are big things. uh it goes to the character of the person you're dealing with. president obama is proving himself not to be trustworthy on the small things and now the very big things. >> reince priebus, thanks for joining us. coming up, president obama sat down with his biggest fan, nbc news host chris matthews today. brent bozell is here with reaction. first of all, obama is losing support among m
years of spread the wealth. you didn't build that. share share economics. where has obama failed detroit? >> here's the problem. the president says let me tax houston, send it to washington, then i'll pass it out to some otr part of the country. by doing so, he picks the winners and losers. picks which businesses he thinks will succeed and then he gives them money. but too often this becomes sort of a kroeny capitalism where the government takes money from somebody who is succeeding in business and gives it to somebody who they think might succeed in business. he did this with solindra. he gave it to one of the richest men in the company to build solar panels but nobody wanted to buy solar panels. anybody that's been a consumer who --or been a business that's been rewarded by the consumer, they're the ones who get the money. >> sounds a lot like -- i don't know -- capitalism. senator, president obama promised to not let detroit go bankrupt. he may have been talking about the auto industry or the city, but did the president lie? >> he's given a lot of promises. he promised we could keep o

will they feel about 50 million next year. obama has lost trust and credibility. if fixing a website will not repair the bond of trust he broke with the american people. >> we will have the other side on that issue coming up. mark, thank you. >> thank you. >> meantime, powerful house committee holds hearings tomorrow that will challenge the president for allegedly failing to uphold his constitutional duty to enforce the laws. our next guest says this rises to the level of impeachable defense. let's table impeachable for a moment. that's a hot button word getting people upset. >> yes. >> but this hearing, they have a congressional hearing on whether the president violated his duty. whether he stepped beyond what he is capable of doing as chief executive of this country. is it so in your view? >> the committee is looking into whether the president has substituted his judgment for that of the congresss. in such a way that he has enforced the law that congress doesn't write because he rewrote it. now look, you and i know this, we're both lawyers. presidents have some discretion. they can
the top 1% is outpacing by seven times -- >> how many years during obama's term did they have exactly what this is? >> believe it or not, president obama is wrong. he has widened the income gap but in a good way, bob. in a good way. one percentage going up 34% and 99% going up 4% and that's a good thing. incoming equality is a misnomer. if the rising tide is raising all boats that's a great thing. >> how can you say in 15 years the top 1% increase in income and the middle class, the same 15 years is 40%. do you think that's equal? >> he's saying it's going up. the numbers are rising up. >> i'm saying it's better for everyone when this happens. >> the rich people get richer. >> and the poor people get richer. >> let me get greg in here first. >> this argument about wealth or income inequality is bogus because it's not about class or income, it's about age. the population is getting older. a 65-year-old has 15 times the wealth as somebody under 35. how does that happen? because as you get older you make more money. i am 49 and i make a lot more money than i did when i was 19. that's how it w
sebelius for three and a half years leading up to the launch of the obama care disaster. peter will join us with that story today. first our top story tonight. there were several important house hearings on capitol hill. all focused on the president's disastrous health care law. let not your heart be troubled. we know you probably couldn't catch up on the hours of testimony. so we put together the highlights for you. >> individuals are losing coverage they are happy with. the doctors with which they are comfortable. this is a tragedy. >> looking forward, the flaws in the law have proved to be getting worse, not better. >> yesterday i logged into the d.c. exchange where members of congress must go and got on error. >> rome wasn't fwhibuilt in a d >> this is people's lives. people are hurt when they can't get medical care. >> i believe the premise for the hearing today is fundamentally flawed. >> people's health care is compromised when they can't get medical care. >> everybody will get less coverage, higher costs. >> this is serious stuff. >> if you can take the name of obama out of obama ca
the congress. a lot of the remedies obama has recommended have gone nowhere in the lalast coue of years. we will start there. secondly, i do not think the speech aually had all whwhole bunch of remies.s. but if you do t face this problem, if we do not face this problem,e are no longer the most mobile society and the world. that we have lost the middle class we once prized. if wdo not start to think about ideaeas to change that, en though this week the unememployment rate went down. we had a real expansion in jobs for the first time in a long time. we can't get diverted by that. this is a problem m we have to ta about. >> the wall street journal sayss the president is moving left on ththe economy to cover up t failures of obamacare. income inequality was enough to get the yor of new york elected. >> income inequality is a reality. you can't argue about it. it is deningng. the realality is, first of all that the financial sector of the country has gotten bigger and more important anand has bier slice of thehe pie. basilly we are responsible for alall of the pain and all of the dislocation ame
the government, repeal obama care year. that's what we did all year, and now we're not doing that anymore. and now nothing is done. and time is almost up. and the question is, will they get it together? can they get it together to do something that isn't repeal obama care before the end of the year? what they said they wanted to do was immigration reform. remember? even republicans said they wanted to do it. democrats are behaving as if it is about to happen. this is the president and the first lady on friday, the day after thanksgiving. friday afternoon down at a tent on the national mall where legendary labor leader alaseo medina and mostly other young activists have been starving themselves in a fast for more than 20 days now to try to move the house to take up the immigration bill that passed this summer in the senate. republicans said they wanted to do it in theory, when the senate passed the comprehensive bill with 14 republican senators in support, republicans said they wanted to support it in theory. first, the house came up with the objection that they didn't want to do a compreh
at the hudson institute and author of "what jefferson read, ike watched and obama tweeted: 200 years in the white house." and jodie ray, from the university of south florida, and igor, coauthor of "prescriptions for real healthcare reform." jodie ray, you're helping to guy navigate the insurance. how is it going down there now? >> we've been busy. we've been very busy. we have over 90 navigators on the ground, and we've got a lot of folks scheduling appointments and walking in to get assistance to apply . our navigators have been using all forms of applications to ensure that every consumer that comes in get assisted, but we're seeing more and more of those being done villa the web. in fact, for november, 71% of the applications submitted under our project were done by the web. >> jodie, does the problems with the website end up making the navigators more important? in florida you have a large population for whom english is a second and a lot of times third language. and you have a lot of seniors who may not understand what the law means for them? >> well, i think that's true regardl
during the campaign last year obama would have been able to have a lot less headaches than he did in running against mitt romney. just as you want to give the administration a lot of minus scores as they deserve for the botched rollout of obama care, 7% unemployment is a pretty good thing to brag about. >> how about the the republicans? are you hearing from them? >> house speaker john bay march with the improving economics there should be less government help given. they are played the case that things are getting better but it's still a fragile situation we have to keep track of. >> yeah. lynn, i want to go over your latest column which focuses on the president's trip to south africa and robben island where nelson mandela was held. how much of an impact do you think nelson mandela has had on prison obama? >> well, i was standing just a few feet away from then senator obama in 2006 when he was touring robben island. i had a sense his first trip was a pilgrimage. he started his career, as everyone noted, his interest in politics being an anti-apartheid protesters. coming to robben
view of president obama's eight years in office. he national journal has a headline recently -- does obama's credibility matter? jimmy carter is the headline there. t quotes frank newport gallup polling's editor and chief on the difference between approval ratings and trustworthiness traitings. approval ratings go up and down. asic faith in a person is more precious and a more fundamental judgment about a president. it's hard toe that, get back. where does a president stand on of trustworthiness. is that a bigger problem now than job approval? i think so. first of all, this is a his dent from the start of administration made honesty and transparency and trustworthiness a central part of his brand, of his politics. e contrasted himself with the previous administration, the weapons of mass destruction in appear.t did not he said he wasn't going to be that kind of president, he feels going to be honest. when his approval ratings were low, his marks for honesty and ss and personal likability were very high. and that helped to buoy him his overall when low.oval rating was the recent this

, the republicans nor the democrats have done much to help african-americans get a job. five years of obama policies have led to high elevated unemployment in the black community and frankly the republicans are perceived as not caring about minorities. what's your plan? >> the republican party should compete for every voter in every city in every state. i think we do that by bringing our message to the people who haven't been hearing it and this is a message of economic empowerment. it's also a message of school choice. if you want to get ahead in our country it's through education. so many people in our big cities are being short changed by a bad school system. we want to make it better through competition, by giving every kid the choice. part of our economic freedom zones is that federal money that comes to detroit isn't going to the school system directly but to the kid and their parents and each parent will decide which school they want to take their money to. >> it's a plan that touches regulation and education as well. >> absolutely. >> obama care, all over the news recently obviously for obvi

four years obama has stated this presidential role that my father has said to make a great president. he has not use the power of the presidency or the executive office to get around to but the congress to be against everything he stands for but. >> i may differ but if you look at his first term he passed the health care act that is having a tremendous impact on american society and then if we could solve the problems with the web site will be what he will be remembered for. :did johnson isn't he could have if he dismissed it and to focus on the job situation with the french industry. but then he did take advantage of that. just like and 1965 when he could pass this legislation for medicare and civil-rights. to get into the second term the house's children's republicans they cannot do very much. >> we probably have a slightly different take but what do you take is his assessment of the preparation obviously obamacare two office with the world collapsing around have. but president bush 43 said hank paulson of a bike to help you but i would do more harm than good but what frustrates pe
of dissatisfaction with president obama this year in particular, 2013, has been a lot because of there has been a lot of transparency issues with the obama administration with a lot of criticism on drone striking and a lot of criticism on his nsa policies as shown in the snowden scandal this last summer. you know, it is in the interest of a state to be able to protect its citizens from internal threats, and in that sense, a lot of things that president obama had to do with the nsa were justified. however, there were very, very far-reaching implications. >> actually, i agree with you on that, although it's tricky business. >> it's tricky business. >> to know where to draw the line. obama or obama care, or nsa, i'll give you options here, because you will admit the polls are plunging and sort of breath-taking to watch this happen. >> okay. i think we need to rewind a bit and just view what the youth, my generation, millenial generation, still holds true to their hearts. we still agree with president obama on the issues important to our generation. we still agree with him on issues like gay marriage. we
. >> where was the criticism? >> eight years into obama, when will you stop blaming bush. >> the same numbers for bush and you didn't say a word. >> it wasn't the same for bush. >> 70%. >> cookies in the green room. >> i'm getting some. >> put that fist down. >> we'll pick it up another time. coming up, a wave of hate crimes put a small liberal arts college on edge. it may not be what it seems. and a woman takes a selfie in front of a would be suicide? and leave a page. like our page and leave a comment. don't forget, bill burton is coming up live on the health care law. follow me on twitter@megyn kelly. should we be tolerating sell if is in front of things like suicide attempts? >>> from the world headquarters of fox news it's "the kelly file" with megyn kelly. >> they started last fall. a growing number of hate messages at a liberal arts college. now it's taken a twist. trace? >> va sar is so concerned this fall they changed the name of the campus life response team to the bias incident response team. just like that, va sar had a rash of bias incidents. 6 in three months. someone spray pain
was a protest against apartheid. >> that first political act came during barack obama's sophomore year of college when he helped plan a rally calling on the school to divest itself from doing business with companies in south africa. as the "chicago tribune" reported he opened in street theater speaking a couple of minutes when two white students in paramilitary dress dragged him away mid sentence. that cameo so impressed rebecca rivera, another rally participant that she wondered why he hadn't been more politically active on campus. she made a mental note at the time to get him involved. the college didn't divest but a new leader inspired by nelson mandela was reborn. as president obama later said in his memoir, i noticed people had begun to listen to my opinion. it was a discovery that made me hungry for words. the president and first lady will travel to africa next week to pay their respects. joining us from washington, among our many other guests, austin, not washington, is msnbc's very own chris matthews. chris, we have a whole panel in new york. i want to go to you first. you spok
the fuse toward war? everybody has been beating this drum. president obama threw water on it two years ago. it seems the drumbeats are coming back. what is your opinion on that and whether you think there's a way to avoid war? >> i do not think it necessarily means of that. i do not think you want to take that step just because when things fall apart it would be a devastating impact for the region and for the world. i think you'll have to wait and see how the negotiations play out. i wouldn't dare make a prediction of on something that important. >> you mentioned the shambles so i was reminded of the budget conference and sequester. there is a plan on the table between chairwoman murray and chairman ryan that would look at about a trillion dollar budget. that's a bit over what the sequester would be. it would give defense a little more money. defense would suffer some sequester. this does not involve new revenue. i am wondering if you and your caucus over there, whether you would be willing to support such a deal for defense even if it did not include revenue or money for extending unemplo

to look at the studies. there's a country that's been running the obama playbook for 20 years. it's tough to fire people. that country is called japan. how has their economy done the past 20 years, terrible. that's the obamanomics there. >> what do you think of jim p.'s challenge? >> i think that the issue that you're missing there was really at the heart of his presentation and, again, there's very strong evidence for this, is it's not so much that inequality hurts growth, although there were references of that in terms of financial bubbles. by the way, there's good research that connects the lack of oversight and the financial problems that we had. what he was talking about was a connection between high income inequality, stagnant incomes for the middle class and diminished opportunity, diminished opportunity. that's what you have left out. that's essential because, look, the three of us will all agree that we in america don't push for equal outcomes but we do believe there ought to be some equality of opportunity. when inequality gets too high, opportunity gets squashed. >> that's wron
. because mr. mandela had been so ill this year, president obama did not personally visit with him while he was on that trip to south africa. in fact, this is interesting. the only time the two men apparently ever met in person was in 2005 in washington, when mr. obama was just starting his career in the united states senate.
